IMM2 action descriptions

This topic provides information about the IMM2 functions available from the web interface.

Navigate to activities you perform with the IMM at the top of the IMM window. The title bar identifies the user name that is logged in, allows you to configure Settings for the status screen refresh rate and a custom trespass message, and Log out of the IMM web interface. Beneath the title bar are tabs that allow you to access various IMM2 functions, as listed in Table 1.

For more information about the IMM2 actions, see the Integrated Management Module II User’s Guide .

Three column table that contains IMM2 web interface actions and descriptions

Tab Selection Description
System Status   The System Status page allows you to view system status, active system events, and hardware health information. It provides quick links to the Server Power Actions, and Remote Control functions of the Server Management tab, and allows you to view an image of the last operating-system-failure screen capture.
Events Event Log The Event Log page displays entries that are currently stored in the IMM event log. The log includes a text description of system events that are reported, including information about all remote access attempts and configuration changes. All events in the log are time stamped, using the IMM2 date and time settings. Some events also generate alerts, if they are configured to do so. You can sort and filter events in the event log and export them to a text file.
Event Recipients The Event Recipients page allows you to manage who will be notified of system events. It allows you to configure each recipient, and manage settings that apply to all event recipients. You can also generate a test event to verify notification feature operation.
Service and Support Download Service Data The Download Service Data page creates a compressed file of information that can be used by Support to assist you.
Server Management Server Firmware The Server Firmware page displays firmware levels and allows you to update the IMM2 firmware, compute node firmware, and DSA firmware.
Remote Control The Remote Control page allows you to control the compute node at the operating system level. It provides access to both Remote Disk and Remote Console functionality. You can view and operate the compute node console from your computer, and you can mount one of your computer disk drives, such as the CD-ROM drive or the diskette drive, on the compute node. When you have mounted a disk, you can use it to restart the compute node and to update firmware on the compute node. The mounted disk appears as a USB disk drive that is attached to the compute node.
Server Properties The Server Properties page provides access to various properties, status, and settings for your compute node:
  • The General Settings tab displays information that identifies the system to operations and support personnel.
  • The LEDs tab displays the status of all system LEDs. It also allows you to change the state of the location LED.
  • The Hardware Information tab displays compute node vital product data (VPD). The IMM2 collects compute node information, compute node component information, and network hardware information.
  • The Environmentals tab displays voltage and temperature information for the compute node and its components.
  • The Hardware Activity tab displays a history of Field Replacable Unit (FRU) components that have been added to or removed from the system.
Server Power Actions The Server Power Actions page provides full remote power control over your compute node with power-on, power-off, and restart actions.
Disks The Disks page displays the status of hard disk drives in the system. You can click on a drive name to display active events for the hard disk drive.
Server Management Processors The Processors page displays the microprocessors in the system, along with their status and rated speed. You can click on a microprocessor name to display events and additional hardware information for the microprocessor.
Server Timeouts The Server Timeouts page allows you to manage compute node start timeouts to detect and recover from compute node hang occurrences.
PXE Network Boot The PXE Network Boot page allows you to change the host compute node startup (boot) sequence for the next restart to attempt a Preboot Execution Environment (PXE)/Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) network startup. The host startup sequence will be altered only if the host is not under Privileged Access Protection (PAP).
Latest OS Failure Screen The Latest OS Failure Screen page displays a screen image, when available, of the most recent operating system failure on the compute node. For your IMM to capture operating system failure screens, the operating system watchdog must be enabled.
IMM Management IMM Properties The IMM Properties page provides access to various properties, status, and settings for your IMM2:
  • The Firmware tab provides a link to the Server Firmware section of Server Management.
  • The IMM Date and Time Settings tab allows you to view and configure date and time settings for the IMM2.
  • The Serial Port tab configures the IMM2 serial port settings. These settings include the serial port baud rate used by the serial port redirection function and the key sequence to switch between the serial redirection and command-line interface (CLI) modes.
Users The Users page allows you to configure the IMM2 login profiles and global login settings, and to view users that are currently logged in to the IMM2. Global login settings include enabling Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) compute node authentication, setting the web inactivity timeout, and customizing the account security settings.
Network The Network Protocol Properties page provides access to networking properties, status, and settings for your IMM2:
  • The Ethernet tab manages how the IMM2 communicates using Ethernet.
  • The SNMP tab configures the SNMPv1 and SNMPv3 agents.
  • The DNS tab configures the DNS compute nodes that the IMM2 interacts with.
  • The DDNS tab enables or disables and configures Dynamic DNS for the IMM2.
  • The SMTP tab configures SMTP compute node information used for alerts sent via email.
  • The LDAP tab configures user authentication for use with one or more LDAP compute nodes.
  • The Telnet tab manages Telnet access to the IMM2.
  • The USB tab controls the USB interface used for in-band communication between the compute node and the IMM2. These settings do not affect the USB remote control functions (keyboard, mouse, and mass storage).
  • The Port Assignments tab allows you to change the port numbers used by some services on the IMM2.
IMM Management Security The IMM Security page provides access to security properties, status, and settings for your IMM2:
  • The HTTPS Server tab allows you to enable or disable the HTTPS compute node and manage its certificates.
  • The CIM Over HTTPS tab allows you to enable or disable CIM over HTTPS and manage its certificates.
  • The LDAP Client tab allows you to enable or disable LDAP security and manage its certificates.
  • The SSH Server tab allows you to enable or disable the SSH compute node and manage its certificates.
IMM Configuration The IMM Configuration page displays a summary of the current IMM2 configuration settings. It also provides the following functions:
  • Backup the current IMM2 configuration
  • Restore a saved IMM2 configuration
  • Display backup and restoration status
  • Reset the configuration of the IMM2 to the factory defaults.
  • Access the IMM2 initial setup wizard
Note: Backups that you make from the IMM user interface will not contain any local user accounts that were created from the IMM user interface.
Restart IMM The Restart IMM page allows you to reset the IMM.
Reset IMM to factory defaults...

The Reset IMM to factory defaults... page allows you to reset the configuration of the IMM2 to the factory defaults.

Attention: When you click Reset IMM to factory defaults..., all of the modifications that you made to the IMM2 are lost.
Activation Key Management The Activation Key Management page allows you to manage activation keys for optional IMM2 or compute node Features on Demand (FoD) features.
